Agnes Walder's long poem is a comment on Western society from a member of another 'tribe' - the tribe of mothers who have children with disabilities. The social conditions alluded to in this poem depict the period between the 1970s and 1990s when children with disabilities were segregated. It is a passionate critique of Western philosophical attitudes whereby the 'ideal' is associated with 'perfection'.
